YMCA Campers Mistaken For Migrant Kids Headed For Detention

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Protesters in Oracle, Arizona are concerned about migrant children reaching the U.S. They planned to protest busloads of kids being taken to a local shelter. State lawmaker, Adam Kwasman, told a reporter of seeing a yellow bus full of kids. Their faces full fear. A reporter then pointed out Kwasman had not spied migrant children full of fear. It was a yellow school bus of YMCA campers. The lawmaker apologized, but added the kids quote, "were sad, too." It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
